Overview

John Taylor, Ph.D. is nationally known for his seminars on this subject. He is a clinical psychologist who lives and practices in Salem, Oregon. For many years he wrote an award-winning column on family relationships and mental health for The Oregon Statesman. He is the author of several books, including the highly praised The Hyperactive Child and the Family.

Helping Your HyperactiveAttention Deficit Child is by far the most comprehensive book on the subject of hyperactivity. Most books take a one-sided approach, be it nutritional, psychological, or medical. Dr. Taylor, however, believes that hyperactive activityattention deficit disorder requires using all the tools from every method available to achieve the best results for the child. This book reflects this multi-dimensional approach. Among the areas covered are:

How to determine if your child has hyperactivity/attention deficit disorder; (includes the Taylor Hyperactivity Screening Checklist)
Approaches to treatment, including medical, nutritional, and drug therapy
The psychological factors, including the child's self-esteem and the impact of his or her behavior on family
Your child at school, including effective teaching approaches, getting help, instilling discipline, and play activities
How to start or join support groups
And much, much more!

If you are the parent or teacher of a hyperactiveattention deficit child or are in the helping professions, this book is essential reading!

"...the author of The Hyperactive Child and the Family continues to share his knowledge about hyperactivity in children...the revised edition, suitable for parents and educators, teaches how to recognize and cope with ADHD."
